I stayed at Brooklands while working locally. Very friendly service. I was away before they served breakfast so Leon offered to leave some fruit, cereal and milk in the fridge in my room. Rooms were very clean, well maintained, quiet and in an ideal location with plenty of local amenities within walking distance.

We arrived to a friendly welcome and the offer of a cuppa ! which was gladly accepted even though we discovered a full choice of beveridges with kettle and mini fridge in the room. The room was lovely and airy but as a girl what I loved most was the mirrors - lots of mirrors but not only that (those... More

When we read reviews on TripAdvisor, we take the view that if the majority are favourable, the hotel/restaurant/B&B/whatever must be OK. Even allowing for the opinions expressed by the inevitable Moaning Minnies, we've never had a bad experience yet. So, when we saw that Brooklands was recently rated No 1 B&B in Penrith by TripAdvisor members, we figured, let's give... More

We would thoroughly recommend this B&B after a comfortable 2 night stay and excellent breakfast. If you are looking for a base in the northern Lakes look no further than Brooklands. Only a few minutes walk to all the town centre amenities and actually on the route of the historic town walk.

Fabulous B&B! Great room with a lovely four poster bed. The room was spacious, immaculate and had everything you needed. The service was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Great food with a great choice of breakfast. Would definitely recommend.

We were given a very warm welcome, had our cases carried to our rooms, and were offered coffee and cake in the dining room to help recover from our journey. We stayed in the four poster room and it had everything we could possibly need. The tea tray was laden with all sorts of hot beverages, biscuits and sweets. Complimentary... More

Beautifully restored Victorian guest house.The fixtures and furnishings are exquisite and are in keeping with the period of the property. The extra touches such as a fridge for milk and water, toothbrushes, and toiletries make this guest house a cut above any other. There was even a compartment in the ensuite mirror with cotton wool & cotton buds! The breakfast... More

Brooklands Guest House is one of the best places I have ever stayed. Over several years I have consistently experienced great service, wonderful breakfasts, comfy, clean rooms and I shall be continuing to visit whenever I can. Penrith is a marvellous place, great shops, restaurants and a good gateway for the Lakes.

From the moment we were greeted at the door, following a hard and gruelling first day on the C2C route, we knew the hard slog from Whitehaven had been worth it! With our bikes swiftly hosed down and secured for the night, a laundry basket was presented for all our wet gear! Little did we know the best was still... More

My single room was small, but very pleasant, and everything was of a high standard. The breakfast was excellent with a good choice of fruits, cereals, muesli e.t.c. The coffee was fine. I didn't have the traditional English Breakfast, but it looked very tempting. The service was friendly and efficient, and I did not feel rushed. I would definitely want... More
